Installing an early single-ply roof system using polyisobutylene membrane over cement-asbestos roof panels

I worked for Johns Manville, Denver, as a research and development chemist and joined its roofing research group in 1965.

I would go back to London. My wife, Anita, and I are Anglophiles, and we travel to England whenever we can.
